FAIRFIELD — Solano County Supervisor Barbara Kondylis was honored Tuesday for her work to reduce domestic and family violence.

She received the Robin Jenkins Memorial Award during the Board of Supervisors meeting. The Solano Partnership Against Violence made the presentation.

Kondylis over the years has supported such local programs as Court Appointed Special Advocates, the county Family Justice Center, Baby Coach and LIFT3 Support Group, said Cynthia Williams of Solano Partnership Against Violence. Kondylis said doing such work comes naturally and should come naturally for everyone.

“I’ve always said, when people are victimized in their own homes, it’s an act of terrorism,” Kondylis said.

Vic Jenkins, father of Robin Jenkins, spoke to the board. He recalled how his daughter was murdered in Las Vegas four years ago while he listened on the phone. The suspect, her former fiance, has yet to go on trial, he said.

“I was very fortunate that instead of wallowing in the uniqueness of that event and feeling I’d been singled out, instead I reached out to the agencies in this area,” Jenkins said.

Jenkins shares his experience as a speaker in support of local groups that work to stop domestic violence.

“Your story I think touches everyone that hears it, not only because it happened, but it happens in various versions all over the country,” Kondylis said.

The Board of Supervisors also passed a resolution recognizing the day at Domestic Violence Remembrance Day in Solano County. Williams said that two women to date this year have been killed in the county due to domestic violence.
